    Hello all! Just curious about rooting the Droid 2 - I don't have one but could not resist going to my local Verizon to play with the floor model :)
    First thing I did was power it down and then back on holding up on the keypad arrow (forget what the mode is called) and then powering up holding down the x key. After doing that with the x key, it booted into Android Recovery and had very similar look/options as SPRecovery including the "Installed .zip from sd card" option. Does that mean a custom ROM would work on it?

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't think it'd be that easy :) Just got a little excited when I saw it booted into a recovery LOL

    Sorry, I am oblivious! I even look before I started this thread - apparently not hard enough :blush:
